LD20 PC, State Committeeman Marianne Ferrari -- Karen Gevaert has no reason to know this, so I don't fault her at all, for questioning Jade. 10-5-17-briefs But Jade Jones has full bona fides! She stood up and seconded both our motions at the Flagstaff ExComm—the motions that sent the RINOs, Kim Owens, Matthew Kenney, et al, into total panic. That was the event that kicked off the very successful public part of our initiative to remove Chairman Lines. That day, Jade boldly confronted Kathy Petsas, bylaws committee "chair," when Petsas refused to allow her to substitute for vacationing county chair, Russell Sias, at  the bylaws cmte “meeting.” Mind you, Russell SENT Jade to Flagstaff as temporary representative for La Paz County! But Petsas refused to acknowledge this, and blocked Jade Jones from attending. This is one more example of the way our state Republican Party is being run by the Republicans-in-name-only who continue to hold their vise grip on top leadership positions. Let me be clear about what I think is going on: In my view, our leadership are NOT REPUBLICANS, but fakers and occupiers commandeering our state party apparatus for their own purposes. As we are always reminded, THIS IS A PRIVATE CLUB, and we can oust these, in my view, globalist fellow travelers with a single vote: The state party bylaws give state committeemen absolute authority to remove any elected party official! No discussion is required! Just the vote! Given the continuing systematic purges of conservatives from the ranks of both PCs and State Committeemen, there’s little time left to USE the power we still retain. By a hairsbreadth, we can still rescue the state party with a simple vote. Do not worry that the best possible replacements might not be at hand. What do you think we have NOW? The right people will come forward, and I call on them, today. I call on real conservatives with the mettle to take this on: Come forward ASAP. And please do not shrink from this, simply because of the natural fears that normal, conscientious people always feel. In my opinion, there has BEEN no one doing real party business for a good long time. Remember Parralee Schneider describing how few duties she has, as 1st vice chair? Hells bells! Within our movement, all the skills are available. We will surround you, help you. Stand up! Stand in the breach.

Navajo County PC Jeff Lineberry: I am the author of the e-mail that was forwarded to Briefs by Senator Allen. Although I was not seeking to escalate this matter beyond Navajo County, I do grant permission to post it in the Briefs as it raises the question of how much power a Committee Chair has over Elected Precinct Committeemen. Given the continued tension between Chairman Slaton and myself, and that I am not the only Committeeman suffering his abuse, this question may have to be answered at the State level.

To:         NCRC Chairman Steven Slaton
CC:         NCRC Precinct Committemen, copy to NCRC Secretary via Postal Service

Re:         Suspension as Precinct Committeeman

    It has been brought to my attention that I have been suspended as a Precinct Committeeman by the NCRC Executive Committee. A copy of an undated NCRC Committee Meeting Minutes indicates the reason for the suspension is my involvement in an investigation, and that I would continue to be suspended until the matter is resolved. At a previous meeting, I spoke out against your attacks on former members of the NCRC being made in a forum where they were not invited to defend their positions.  I see that you did not take heed of my warning.  I was never notified of an Executive Committee meeting where I would a topic of discussion and disciplinary action.

    As I am a Precinct Committeeman elected by the public, neither you as NCRC Chairman nor the NCRC Executive Committee have the statutory authority to suspend me from the duties and responsibilities of my Office.  That I would be suspended from the NCRC for being investigated is contrary the American principle of “Innocent until proven guilty.”  This appears to be nothing more than a witch hunt by an tyrannical Chairman who chooses to silence dissenting opinions through force instead of debate.

    I am aware that the NCRC Bylaws indicate an appeal process for members who are suspended for “Bad Conduct.”  However, the reasons stated in the Minutes do not indicate suspension for that reason. Further, as the NCRC Executive Committee does not have the authority to suspend an elected Precinct Committeeman in the manner noted in the Minutes, I choose not to cede that authority to the NCRC Executive Committee by way of appealing their decision. As an elected Precinct Committeeman and a member of the NCRC, I will be attending the October 5th meeting of the NCRC and expect to be treated as any other member in good standing would be treated.  Anything less will be noted and objected to as inappropriate and may be referred to the Parliamentarian as “Bad Conduct”, subject to the NCRC Bylaws.

Navajo County Republican Chairman Steven Slaton’s ongoing Oct 5 e-mail conversation with Jeff Lineberry: Slaton’s response are in underlined, italics.

     Lineberry to Slaton: I wish to remind you that using all caps in a text or e-mail is commonly considered to be shouting.  Please keep your comments civil and refrain from using all caps. Get over it; put your big boy’s pants on!

    L to S:  If, by your statement that “WE HAD ALL RIGHT” you are indicating the NCRC, then you are mistaken in your understanding of the NCRC.  The NCRC is a political subdivision of the AZ GOP. It is an entity, not a person and therefore has no Rights.  The NCRC has authorities granted to it by the AZ GOP. Once again you are misspeaking! State Statues and political committee filing regulations say differently. But I Guess you didn’t know that since you never filed Treasurer Reports with the STATE!

     L to S: On the other hand, I am an American Citizen with Rights conferred upon me by God and confirmed by the Constitution of the United States, and with Duties assigned to me by the Electors of Navajo County.  Yes you are an American Citizen with rights, and your duties assigned you as a PC is; As a Precinct committeeman, you are a neighborhood leader.  The handbook will help provide you with the information you need when you are canvassing your neighborhood, registering new voters, talking to people about our Republican Party platform, and helping our candidates reach out to meet voters in your area.  More resources are available by attending your legislative district or county party meetings.

    L to S: Please provide references to any Arizona Revised Statutes that grant the NCRC the authority to usurp any of those Rights and Duties as described above, for without those Statutes the NCRC is powerless to change my status as an Elected Precinct Committeeman and member of the NCRC. You are misspeaking again! Look them up yourself! We did not change your status as an elected precinct committeeman! We suspended you from NCRC activities till the investigations are complete, which is within our authority thru the Statues and NCRC by-laws.

     L to S: I choose not to argue that a letter was sent, only to state that I did not receive any letter or electronic correspondence prior to or after the meeting of the Executive Committee.  I would ask for proof of mailing said letters be provided at your earliest convenience. I’ll resend you the letter at my earliest convenience.

     L to SS: I have received no notification from any Judicial or Law Enforcement agency regarding any investigations, therefore I consider the matters to have been resolved without my involvement. I cannot speak on this. It is a continuing investigation and all I can say is your involvement has not been resolved.

    L to S: It is not my responsibility to know every aspect of the Open Meeting Laws.  That is the job of the Chairman, and the Parliamentarian.  Stop It!!! You perfectly knew what you were doing on conveying that the NCRC have to follow OPEN MEETING LAWS. Once again you misspoke about who is governed by open meeting laws. WE ARE NOT GOVERNED BY OPEN MEETING LAWS. We talked to the State Attorney General office and we are not governed by open meeting laws period! YOU WERE WRONG!

     L to S: Where in Robert’s Rules of Order does it say that inquiring on Points of Order is considered argumentative?  My Points were considered and answered during the meeting and subsequent to those Points being raised, the issue being discussed was tabled.  It’s, in the 11th addition as well we found out from the state attorney general office. You’re wrong!

     L to S: My attendance at the NCRC meetings is not mandatory, and has no bearing on my status as an Elected Official.  If my lack of attendance causes a deficiency in my duties, then that for the voters of my precinct to consider, not the NCRC. You should read the PC handbook!

     L to S:  Since the NCRC changes the meeting location every month, and does not send any written or electronic correspondence to me regarding these changes, that creates an undue burden to attend the meetings. Once again your misspeaking notices (e-mails, newspaper) were sent out days before each meeting.

     L to S:  I have received word from other members that tonight’s meeting has been cancelled.  Again, I received no official notice, and am relying on other members unofficial correspondence to save me the undue burden of travelling to a meeting which has been cancelled.  Being suspended there is no need to notify you, upon the outcome of these investigations.

     L to S:  Regarding the NCRC having not heard from me, I could make the same assumptions since I have not heard directly from the NCRC.  Aside from the general missives in my e-mail regarding attempts to remove Chairman Lines and other Quixotic causes championed by the Chair, I have received no recent announcements of meetings or copies of Minutes for review.  You’ve been suspended therefore you’re not going to received any correspondence tell these investigations are complete. Period! Once Navajo County Attorney Office contacts me, and the Secretary of State, and if you’re cleared then you’ll be notify by the NCRC.

    L to S: I look forward to your reply and the opportunity to attend the meeting in November. At this point don’t count on it, as I stated above till these matters are cleared up.

May God Bless the People of Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands: On Tuesday, First Lady Melania Trump accompanied the President to Puerto Rico to visit with individuals impacted by Hurricane Maria. The First Lady, along with President Trump, surveyed the damage and relief efforts and met personally with hurricane victims. “To the first responders and local officials who have worked tirelessly to provide aide, on behalf of a grateful Nation I say thank you.
